In her 2019 memoir, Moore revealed that she was actually proud of their divorce. Both of them didn’t make their split difficult. She never obstructed his access to the kids and they never used any ploys that divorcing couples used as weapons. It’s safe to say that their divorce was peaceful and that their family is still intact until this day.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, netizens go crazy as they made rumors that Emma and Bruce split up resulting in Bruce’s quarantining in Demi’s house. Willis was seen on Instagram through Rumer’s post spending all the weeks of quarantine with his elder kids and ex-wife without having his present family around.

It was soon cleared up when Heming posted on her Instagram on May 6 that they are back together under one roof again. Scout Willis also revealed why her stepmom and stepsister didn’t spend the quarantine with the family. They actually had planned to spend it together but circumstance didn’t permit because Evelyn poked her foot with hypodermic needles so they waited for her results after taking her to the doctor.

Even now that they are already of age, his three ladies with Moore are so thankful for this set-up and Rumer even praised their parenting for they never experienced having separate birthday parties for their mom and dad makes ways to celebrate it all together.


Tallulah, one of Bruce’s daughters with Demi Moore, posted a photo of the family in matching green striped pajamas on Monday while they were together on a lockdown.  There was no hint of bitterness from Emma when she posted on the comment section and said that not many can pull off the color and the squad is looking good!


Willis’ made his family worthy of emulation as he works to keep them all as one big happy bunch. In June 2020, Emma celebrated her birthday with a family picnic, having Demi and Rumer come along. Heming shared on Instagram that it was a very happy birthday for her. They, later on, went on a hike with the ex-couple in tow.

The stepmom and the mom were also seen cheering Evelyn as she learns to ride a bike. According to People, the strange family set-up during their quarantine together in Idaho is so cool for they get to be with their parents in one home decades after their divorce. Not only that, but they can also spend time with each other and she’s just very grateful to be with the family.

Failed marriages don’t entirely mean broken relationships also. Willis and his family proved that. He is also very lucky that he got a new wife who is game to work things out for the happiness of everybody. After all, a relationship only needs trust, respect, and love in order to keep going, not only that, but it also builds bridges for families to come together.
